HP Pavilion x360 14 (2021) 2-in-1 Laptop: Good battery life, dim display

HP Pavilion x360 14 (2021) review: 2-in-1 laptop supports pen-input and Power Delivery
HP’s 2-in-1 device features the Core i5-1135G7, 16 GB of dual-channel RAM and an NVMe SSD. This is why it can handle all modern tasks. The touchscreen can be operated with the fingers or the HP Tilt Pen.

The HP Pavilion x360 14 is a 14-inch 2-in-1 device. All laptops in this series are powered by Intel’s Tiger Lake CPUs. Our review device features an Intel Core i5-1135G7. The processor offers more than enough performance for such usage scenarios as Internet browsing and office work. However, the Pavilion x360 14 cannot take full advantage of the Intel CPU. The HP notebook does well when it comes to single-core performance, but it struggles in multi-core applications.

The battery life can be described as good. The Pavilion x360 14 can be charged with HP’s proprietary charger or with a USB-C power adapter (45 W minimum). The USB-C port can also output a DisplayPort signal.

The data transfer speeds that we have measured under the optimal conditions (no other Wi-Fi-enabled devices in close proximity, a short distance between the notebook and the server PC) are very poor. The Pavilion x360 only managed to achieve speeds of 433 Mb/s in our Wi-Fi test.

The touchscreen (FHD, IPS) is not all that impressive: The average brightness is too low and the colour reproduction is too poor. However, the contrast ratio is on a very good level. The touchscreen can be used with the fingers or the HP Tilt Pen, which is sold separately.

What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

I am a big fan of technology, which is why I try to keep up with it. Among my other passions are literature and writing, and so it should not be surprising to anyone at all that I have a four-year bachelor's degree in philology. However, my interests are not limited just to the world of technology, or, for that matter, the world of literature. I am also interested in people and the stories they have to tell. And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
